of a bigger picture the fact that the obama foreign policy is unraveling literally before our eyes and on our tv screens. gregg: i suspect that is point you would share? >> the media and "new york times" owes mitt romney a apology. he was right. waited 15 hours, the concerns that silence and weak statement out of cairo was inappropriate response. he was right. the obama administration waited 15 hours as the administration developed. their first reaction was to go after mitt romney. the mead yu followed that and we're finding mitt romney was right. this administration had a very weak reaction to a growing threat and people need to wonder what would have happened if the president came out an condemned this hours as it was happening before the ambassador was killed. gregg: rick, thank you very much. appreciate it. jenna: more on that story throughout the day for sure. meantime a powerful typhoon toppling trees and power lines and proving deadly. where this storm is hitting, we have that just ahead. >>> plus independent voters, they were key to putting president obama in the white house but could

in these debates and go after the president, specifically on foreign policy. governor romney hit the president on the response to the consulate attack in libya on his weekly podcast. take a listen. >> we've seen a confused, slow, and inconsistent response to the terrorist attack in libya. a refusal to be frank with the american people about what happened, and a complete failure to explain the growing terrorist threat we face in the region. >> is that the winning line of attack there? >> well, certainly going after the president on what has been one of his strengths in recent years would be one way of going big. foreign policy doesn't tend to be one of the top issues for many voters, even after 9/11, so it won't necessarily help him on the economic front. so i don't know how much it would ultimately yield him, but he's been very tough on president obama on foreign policy, hearing him say, again, something along the lines of what you just plays wouldn't surprise me a bit. >> beth fouhy, thank you so much, and anne kornblut, always a pleasure, and so much so, we'll see you a little bit later this

d date will focus on foreign policy. earlier this week the carnegie endowment for peace posted a discussion on the president's role in leading foreign policy. they talked about challenges facing the u.s. including american influence and engagement globally, the changing international order and emerging nations. two of the featured panelists included thomas friedman, "new york times" foreign affairs columnist and author of "the world is flat." and jessica mathews, carnegie president and director of national security office of global issues. >> good evening. my name is david rothkopf, and i will be the moderator for this evening. in the carnegie endowment discussion about how should the next american president engage the world. this is a debate format discussion. we have a terrific group of panelists here. starting on the far right we have professor john ikenberry of princeton. next is tom friedman of the new york times. next to him is our own jessica matthews of the carnegie endowment, and beside jessica is bob kagan at the brookings institution and we are going to cover several

today in virginia beach. and he went right at mr. romney on foreign policy and the wars. and he is -- he's right there when he says that we don't know what mr. romney would do if he became president. mr. romney has said recently and vaguely that he supports what president obama is doing in afghanistan in terms of there being a timeline for leaving but he has also said he was against a timeline for leaving in the past. so really who knows? he's not even trying. the closest we've gotten to any competing cogent republican position on the war is probably what we got from senator john mccain at the republican convention when he said that the afghanistan war just shouldn't end. he also thinks that the iraq war shouldn't have ended. so i'm not sure that it's a politically viable position. even if it is an internally cogent one from the senator. for this year's nominee, it's apparently just not going to happen. not unless he starts it now. 40 days out, mitt romney did get as close as he gets to talking about the issue today. in that he spoke before a group of veterans and talked about a concern

and said it had to be he must have gotten foreign policy information that must have thrown him all askew. it's like people coming up with all these reasonings instead of looking at it as it was, which were two men on stage talking about the economy and where this country is moving forward and that's what it was! so just judge it for what it was with two men on the stage. not altitude probes or foreign policy secrets. >> brian: it reminds me of this great band, the blues brothers, who found themselves in a pickle and had to lie their way out of it. tell me if this sounds familiar. >> you betrayed me! >> no, i didn't. honest! i ran out of gas! i had a flat tire! i didn't have money for cab fare. my tux didn't come back from the cleaners. a friend came from out of town. there was a earthquake! a terrible flood! it wasn't my fault! i swear to god! >> brian: i just think that's e. that's very similar vein for what we're seeing right now. and i bought all those excuses and i'm buying these ones now. altitude and unexpected something got on my mind before that 90-minute debate. >> gretchen: may

taking our foreign policy in a different direction. the middle east is in flames against america and our ambassador is dead. mr. president, in sudan they will not allow u.s. marines to guard american soil. what do you have to say about that? >> sean: romney has got to understand, they're not going to ask these questions. it's his job to bring it up as of next wednesday. here's andrea mitchell, "nbc nightly news," and she says it's ambassador rice who was sent out with false information that we now know is false, as corroborated by a scrubbed websites at the state department to lie as as did jay carney, as did secretary clinton. watch this. >> it's very unusual for the intelligence community to make this admission. politics are clearly in play. the questions being asked are why did they get it wrong? was it because there was a cover-up or was it because they were trying to avoid acknowledging mistakes this close to an election? so there is always a political context. certainly the white house today and tonight very strongly defending susan rice, but she is in the crosshairs right now of t

clear on foreign policy, and there has been a lack of leadership. in 2009, there were protesters in iran. we heard nothing from our government. in 2011, the government finally stepped forward and we saw some sanctions put in place. i am happy to see european countries have also stepped forward and into a limited sanctions against iran. but we need to have a strong administration who is going to make it clear that a line needs to be drawn. we have never heard from this government. we have never heard them say that iran should not be in reaching uranium. we need to make clear if we are going to be leaders, if the united states of america is going to be a leader in foreign policy and keep stability in this world as has been our mission in the past, then we need to make it clear. >> sen. fischer, thank you. >> i'm not running for president so i do not want to disagree with president obama or governor romney on iran, but we cannot allow them to acquire nuclear weapons. but what happens afterwards? they do not call it the persian gulf for nothing. we got worked up when we launched cruise missi

, which i believe is focused on foreign policy. i just want the candidates to be asked about this. >> there's also, mika, a front page in the "new york times" that everybody ought to read saying u.s. abandoning hopes for taliban peace deal. just to go back to afghanistan. it says one of the expectations was that we could batter the taliban coming to the table to work out some kind of a deal. well, we all could've handed our government history books that would indicate over history that wasn't going to happen. so the idea that's a surprise that the taliban isn't going to suddenly sit down with us and work out a government and work alongside us should not come as a surprise to people, but apparently it is. now we walk away from that possibility. >> obviously afghanistan has a long history with the british, the soviets, everybody. and there's a famous saying, you can't want democracy for more than they want it for themselves. so we are not going to change the whole culture of afghanistan. it's not why we went there. we went to deal with al qaeda and terrorism and it became a nation-b

the policies of barack obama than under the disastrous economic foreign policy, environmental educational you name it policies of george w. bush and dick cheney across the board? i mean is that it? is it they're totally out of it, stupid, don't know the issues? watch too much fox news? i mean i really cannot figure it out because by any measure, we talked about this before, by any measure, yeah, times are tough. yes, too many americans are out of work. yes, too many have had to take second jobs or new careers or they're not making as much or don't have as much authority and responsibility, not as good a job as they had the first time around. yeah, we know all of that. but overall americans are a hell of a lot better off than they were four years ago. white males are better off than they were four years ago. romney's policies, if anything, are going -- would set them back were he president because under him, there would be no middle class. there would be the very poor and the very, very, very, very, very rich like him. so this who

for him there and hopefully that some people who do like a little less aggressive foreign policy, who are fiscally conservative but want the government to be limited and really think that the debt's a problem, those have been the things that i have talked about. and i think that will attract some moderates and independents also to the ticket. >> when -- and i see it where what you just said, people are -- romney was interviewed by cnn, said about ohio, polls go up and polls go down, but when november 6th comes people are going to recognize we don't want a government that just keeps getting larger and larger and we want more, you know, business and the private sector to do better. and when he picked ryan, i thought, all right, it's a clear choice now, the country has a clear choice which way they want to go. but something got lost in the last -- you can just look at the polls where that didn't -- people are not looking at that at this point. they must be looking at something else because we do see president obama leading in most polls. what changed? what's different? >> well, it doesn'
